Birthday Wishes

This week Fantabulous Cricut challenge #22 is follow this sketch and my friend Sara has her very first post as a design team member. YAY! So to celebrate her new role I figured I better get over there and play along.  I typically use my cricut for mixed media and scrapbooking titles on pages. So is was a challenge for me to follow a layout with cricut instead of hauling out the stamps and ink.

For this card I used a kraft base, 6x6 paper pack from MME Blush, a small wooden heart embellishment, script embossing folder, Elegant Edges and Celebrate with Flourish Cricut Cartridges. Because I just couldn't leave it plain I also used Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap distress ink. Guess I lost my personal challenge of no ink...

Here's the sketch we were to follow.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I love reading your comments.
